Trump Doesn’t Stand a Chance Against Clinton Say Finance Chiefs by Robert Hackett @FortuneMagazine May 16, 2016, 4:32 PM EDT E-mail Tweet Facebook Linkedin Share icons Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton will handily beat her Republican opponent Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, according to a group of chief financial officers who were polled as part of a CNBC survey. The results—part of the network’s latest global CFO council survey—found that 83% of finance chiefs reported believing Clinton will triumph in the general election. Get Data Sheet, Fortune’s technology newsletter. The survey polled 103 business executives between the end of April through mid-March. Of the 44 finance chiefs who responded, two dozen were based in the U.S. The poll asked these respondents: “Regardless of your personal political affiliation, who do you think will be the next President of the United States?” Here’s how the U.S.-based finance chiefs answered. Three people (12.5%) reported that they believed Donald Trump would prevail in the 2016 election. One person (4.2%) said that another candidate would win. Some caveats: the poll obviously has an exceedingly small sample size, and it targets a highly specific demographic (U.S.-based CFOs). That means it’s a very poor representation of an actual election scenario. Also, it’s worth noting that the poll’s participants have, in past surveys, consistently underestimated Trump’s chances of success. For more on Trump, watch: “The CFO Council has been skeptical over the viability of a Trump political run from the beginning and it took some time for the group to come around to the idea that Trump would even be the GOP nominee,” CNBC reports. “It was not until March when the majority of predicted that Trump would be the likely GOP nominee.” Maybe the CFOs should just stick to counting money.
